My Students

I work in a very large elementary school in a suburban neighborhood in Virginia. Our school has over a thousand students and is growing because of lots of new development being built around the school.

Our school is a "Leader In Me" school.

Our school teaches the Franklin Covey's Seven Habits. My students love to work on "Habit 6- Syngerize" in music class as it takes lots of synergy to create music! My students love to shine as leaders throughout the school, especially in music performances.

The population at my school represents students from many different cultures and economic backgrounds. `

My Project

Singing, dancing, playing drums, playing Orff xylophones, playing small percussion instruments, improvising, composing, and guided listening. There are so many things for music students to do with this curriculum and to actively engage my students. The Gameplan curriculum provides a framework for the school year with fun songs and activities for every musical concept.

The GamePlan Curriculum is one that I owned at the last school I taught at and since I no longer am at a school that owns it I find myself longing for the curriculum.

Gameplan is a fantastic curriculum based on the Orff Schulwerk method that includes songs, musical games, improvisation activities, teaching techniques, and so much more. The GamePlan curriculum was created by two great teachers and pedagogues of the American Orff community and this resource provides a framework for success for students and teachers. This sequential curriculum encompasses the entire year and includes all the materials, songs, music, and resources needed to produce meaningful music. I'm asking for the GamePlan Kindergaten, First and Second Grade curriculum books.
